One thought on “Corner Gas: The Movie gets super-simulcast on CTV & CTV Two”
Everyone who knows me knows I’m a huge supporter of Saskatchewan-made television and in Saskatchewan in general (I actually had the nickname of Sask when I lived in Winnipeg due to my penchant for purposely using Saskatchewan slang and wearing a Rider shirt on Winnipeg Blue Bombers game days) but I’ve never liked Corner Gas as I HATED most of the characters (except Oscar who I thought was great) and I was annoyed by the pointless storylines that were said to be reminiscent of Seinfeld (FYI U hated Seinfeld). I can say that I dislike this Saskatchewan show without guilt cause the show gets awesome ratings. I will watch the movie though, just because it was made here and I’d feel guilty about not watching it.
